1956 'GEECHEE DEDICATION 






' 




Mrs. Margaret Spencer Lubs is, we feel, well-deserving of the 1956 'Geechee Dedication. A mem- 
ber of the original Armstrong faculty, Mrs. Lubs has served the college faithfulh through many of the 
intervening years. A teacher of French and English, she holds a degree in the field of music as well 
as French, has been a strong supporter of the once active student French Club, and is co-author of 
the words to our fine Alma Mater. 



FEATURES

PRESIDENT HA WE; 



The year 1956 has been a vital one at Armstrong. Enrollment has soared, changes necessary to a dy- 
namic curriculum have been made, and improvements and repairs to the college are noticeable everywhere. 
The guiding force behind these signs of progress is our President, Foreman M. Hawes. In his nineteenth 
year as president of the college, Air. Hawes deserves the tribute of the 'Geechee staff and all students for 
his fine administrative abilities and qualities of leadership. 

As we all know the President's office is readily accessible to the student with any kind of question or 
problem, and Mr. Hawes' interest in student affairs, his insistence on the student's right of self-government 
has been a strong factor in strengthening the power of the Student Senate.

varsity basketbal: 



The 1956 'Geechees, under the capable 
leadership of a new coach, Roy Sims, with 
only three hold-overs from the previous 
year, began the season slowly. The going 
was rough at first but by mid-season the 
team had gained considerable polish and 
was able to better its record in the latter 
part of the season by winning five out of 
the last seven games. The total number of 
'Geechee points for the season was 1,376 
making an average of 68.8 per game.

included weekly Sunday evening serv- 
ices and social meetings at St. Paul's

cial gatherings at members' homes.

ty advisor and much invaluable as-

college more with the church. It succeeded with the 
joint cooperation of the Canterbury Club in pro- 
viding services for students during Lent. The mem- 
bers held their meetings bi-monthly and often at 
each other's homes. The group participated in many 
of the state conferences and retreats and is affiliated 
with the State Methodist Movement.

A tense moment in "Outward Bound.' 



Under the able and sensitive hand of the new di- 
rector, Ross C. Durfee, the Masquers opened a 
successful season with a Russian farce, "Squaring 
the Circle" by Valentine Kataev. In the play, the 
leading roles were competently rendered by Dottie 
Baxley, Ed Newton, Claire Sutton, and Ronald 
Langford. The excellent staff of supporters was 
comprised by Cecil Pacetti, Don Fallin, Alfred 
Baker, and Dickie Pacetti. 

In the Winter quarter the play chosen for pro- 
duction was Sutton Vane's comedy-drama, "Out- 
ward Bound." In a well received rendition of the 
novel play, Jerry Muller, Molly Williams, Ronald 
Lasky, Linda Nease, and Robert Epps, represented 
dead people enroute to heaven — or hell. Romantic 
interest was capably supplied by Mack Jones and 
Joyce Mincey, while Danny Cronian represented 
the sympathetic steward who allayed their fears of 
the Examiner, Pete O'Millian.

CANDLE 



NURSE 



Concentrating in the courses at Armstrong related to their 
chosen field, the student nurses from the Candler Hospital 
School of Nursing take their freshmen year's work at Arm- 
strong. Though their busy schedule permits them little time 
for college activities, the nurses are welcomed at all school 
functions held at the college and often hold dances of their 
own in Jenkins Hall.

NOT IN WOODED kWLP&fRfeabe! 

\1 J '/hen Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over the kerosene lamp, her owner had 
no idea that such a simple incident would set in motion a chain of fires 
that would lay waste to vast sections of the city of Chicago. 

We have a suspicion that the motorist who flicks a lighted cigarette from 
the window of his car while driving through Georgia's magnificent forest areas 
doesn't realize that this simple act of thoughtlessness could start a forest fire 
that might destroy millions of trees, homes and business structures, wild life, and 
possibly lives. 

Union Bag & Paper Corporation and other concerns comprising the state's 
rapidly developing forest products industries are growing more trees for to- 
morrow. If these young trees are to provide jobs, payrolls, and urgently needed 
products in the future, they must be protected from fire. 

Won't you please cooperate with us by snuffing out your cigarette in your 
car ashtray and encourage others to adopt this sound forest fire prevention 
practice?

YEARBOOKS 



Fine yearbooks, produced by the skilled hands 
of dedicated craftsmen, arc a continuing 
tradition with Foote & Davies. Since 1887, the 
name, Foote & Davies, has symbolized the 
hallmark of quality in printing. We hope you 
will enjoy, for many years to come, this 
permanent record of your school days.
